December 11, 2013

Kids can be really hard to buy for, but luckily we’ve tried-and-tested Christmas gifts that they’ll really love, from little ones to teens.

Monty the Sleepy Fox
How lovely is Monty? He’ll soothe any little one to sleep and be their best friend when they wake up.

This runaway success is a game for the whole family. Bananagrams is a fresh take on popular word games packed up into a bright banana shape bag. Perfect for family game nights or even a quiet afternoon with the kids, it can entertain them for hours. It tests your mind, patience and vocabulary skills, catching you out when you least expect it! Suitable for ages 7+. $25.
